My car has manual mirrors. I want to upgrade them. I was wondering if anyone has done it and what do I need besides the motors and switches for the console.
thanx

i would assume WIRES, relays, modules, and power :)

your title says windows, but your msg says mirrors... which one is it?

for power mirrors it shouldnt be too hard, cuz the motor is in the mirrors so all you'd have to do is buy some mirrors, wire it up and get some switches.. to upgrade to power windows would probably be a bit more work as you'll have to take apart the door frames, install the motors, then install switches etc.. did e30's even come with non-power windows... havent seen it yet

they do come with no options. I think it is not that easy .
sebster , how do you know that he has motor in mirror?
If it was manual then i doubt.
